Directly from the slaughterhouse

Newsroom24x7 Desk

Cows do think and have emotions. I worked the largest slaughterhouse on the planet, Iowa Beef (now run by Tyson Foods Inc). We killed 200 cattle an hour. When the cattle were moving close to the kill spot, they would weep, crying with big tears trembling with fear – Jeff Lerch, ex-slaughterhouse worker

Lerch’s reflection of his nightmarish and emotion rattling last moments with the cattle herded for the fatal blow in the slaughterhouse  should rattle the sensibilities of the people.

People driving near a milk factory in Colombia the other day were startled to see new born calves stuck inside garbage bags, waiting to get picked up by the meat industry.

This is how the milk & cheese industry treats new born male calves that can’t be forcefully impregnated and exploited for milk says a facebook post

Lerch goes on to recount: “You can smell the blood when you’re getting close, and I am sure they knew what’s up. The unborn baby calfs had the blood sucked out of them before taking a breath, then thrown into what would become dog food. I have stories that can make your hair stand on end. Cows have emotions, just like your dog or cat and farm kids would have them as pets until parents would sell them to make your hamburger.””

Words by Divine Web now viral on social media.
